Foam earbud tips from Comply are launching soon for the Pixel Buds

Foam earbud tips from Comply are launching soon for the Pixel Buds

When Google released the next-generation Pixel Buds earlier this year, reactions were mixed. The earbuds came equipped with a lot of neat features, but the basic experience was subpar, with glitchy Bluetooth connections and a fit that couldn't be called the most comfortable in the world. Now a new accessory coming to the Google Store may help alleviate that last concern, as Comply is bringing its fancy foam ear tips to Pixel Buds.

Is the Pixel 5 Android's version of the iPhone 12 Mini?

Is the Pixel 5 Android's version of the iPhone 12 Mini?

Apple's new iPhone 12 Mini has turned quite a few heads for one big reason: It's a flagship phone, but it's positively tiny, upsetting the ongoing trend equating bigger to better. For those who prefer Android, there's a certain degree of small-phone envy, though some consider the Pixel 5 to be Google's equivalent. But is the Pixel 5 actually a good, small phone in the same vein as the iPhone Mini? If you're asking us, the answer is a clear "no."

Google's December Pixel Feature Drop lands today with too many features to count

Google's December Pixel Feature Drop lands today with too many features to count

December's Pixel Feature Drop is upon us, rolling out a handful of new features for the Pixel 3 and later Google devices. That includes familiar features trickling down from the Pixel 5 to older phones, like Hold For Me and Extreme Battery Saver, but also some new benefits, like an Adaptive Sound feature that leaked last week, in-app translations via the App Overview, extra home screen customization options, the ability to export your Now Playing song recognition history into YouTube Music playlists, and an Adaptive Connectivity feature to move between 4G and 5G based on the app you're using — and that's not even all of it.

The Pixel 5 is not enough — and way too much

The Pixel 5 is not enough — and way too much

I've been using the Pixel 5 for the better part of a week now, and it's the first Google phone in years I'm getting a very particular feeling about. It takes great photos, I think the physical design is muted in a very charmingly Google way, and the software is exactly the unfettered Android experience I've come to know and love. But I'm just not sure how long I'm going to keep using it now that this review has gone up.

The Pixel 5 is by its nature an exercise in compromise. A slower chipset, the lack of face unlock, a missing telephoto camera lens, and cost cuts on components like haptics make it a bizarre case of this year's phone being worse in very material ways than last year's.

Google's new Extreme Battery Saver mode will be coming to older Pixels 'very soon'

Google's new Extreme Battery Saver mode will be coming to older Pixels 'very soon'

At today's Watch Night In event, Google announced a new Extreme Battery Saver feature for Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5, allowing you to stretch your battery's limits beyond what was previously possible. That's all well and good for early adopters of the new phones, but what about those of us with older Pixels? Luckily, Google has said that Extreme Battery Saver will be coming to existing Pixels in a feature drop "very soon."

The Pixel 4a 5G will be available on November 19 in the US

The 5G-compatible follow-up to Google's Pixel 4a is now official. Sporting similar internals and the same camera as Google's Pixel 5, the 4a 5G has a bigger 6.2" OLED display, 3,800mAh battery, and even a headphone jack, all in a not-too-big plastic body. It might not have the more expensive Pixel 5's 90Hz display, but it's a big step up from the already amazing Pixel 4a, and it costs $499. We've got all the official specs below.

Google's new Pixel 5 is the phone we expected, at the price we didn't

Google's Pixel 5 is official. The long-awaited flagship was formally announced after months of leaks at Google's Launch Night In event, packing the expected Snapdragon 765G, a 6" 90Hz OLED display (with perfectly symmetrical bezels!), and the always-amazing Pixel camera, now sporting a wide-angle secondary rather than last year's telephoto. That's all starting at $699 — a little more than we were hoping. Pre-orders are open now, though ship dates are a bit far out (over a month here in the US).
